Here is my code:

<html>
<head />
<body>
<form action="login2.php" method=POST>
<table border="0" width="100%" id="table1">
      <tr>
            <td width="42%">&nbsp;</td>
            <td align="center" width="15%" colspan="2">
<img src="http://www.website/images/about/CG210.png" width="321" height="188"><p align="center">
<?php

$user=$_POST['user'];
$pass=$_POST['pass'];

$link="<a href=\"http://www.website/page.html\"><strong>View Plans</strong></a>";

if(($user=="user") && ($pass=="pass")) echo('<table width="100%"><tr><td align="center">'."$link".'</td></tr></table>');

else echo('<table width="100%"><tr><td align="center">Please Login</td></tr></table>');

?>

<br>

<font size="4">&nbsp;Welcome</font></td>
<tr>
            <td align="center" width="41%">
            &nbsp;</td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
            <td width="42%">&nbsp;</td>
            <td align="center" width="4%" style="text-align: left; margin-left: 20">
            <p style="margin-left: 22px">Username</td>
            <td align="center" width="11%" style="text-align: left; margin-left: 20">
            <input name=user style="float: left" size="29"></td>
            <td align="center" width="41%">
            <p align="left">&nbsp;</td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
            <td width="42%" height="30">&nbsp;</td>
            <td align="center" height="30">
            <p align="left" style="margin-left: 22px">Password</td>
            <td align="center" height="30">
            <input type=password name=pass style="float: left" size="29"></td>
            <td align="center" width="41%" height="30">
            &nbsp;</td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
            <td width="42%" height="30">&nbsp;</td>
            <td align="center" width="15%" height="30" colspan="2">
            <p align="left" style="margin-left: 21px">
<input type=submit value="Login" style="float: left"></td>
            <td align="center" width="41%" height="30">
            <p align="left">&nbsp;</td>
      </tr>
      </table>
<p>
<p>
</form>

</body>
</html>

What I want to do is:

when the user logins in with the correct username password combo, they are displayed a link. all is well and it works perfectly with the code above. However I am wanting instead of displaying a link, I would like it to take the user directly to the link when the login is correct. Is this possible. If so, help. If not: i would like to display just the link and  hide the username & password boxes.

I know this is extremely basic. I will soon be using global variables/sessions to verify login for the future login pages.

Change your code to look like this
<?php

$user=$_POST['user'];
$pass=$_POST['pass'];

$link="http://www.website/page.html";

if(($user=="user") && ($pass=="pass")) {
 header("location:$link");
}
 $html = '<table width="100%"><tr><td align="center">Please Login</td></tr></table>';
}
?>
<html>
<head />
<body>
<form action="login2.php" method=POST>
<table border="0" width="100%" id="table1">
      <tr>
            <td width="42%">&nbsp;</td>
            <td align="center" width="15%" colspan="2">
<img src="http://www.website/images/about/CG210.png" width="321" height="188"><p align="center">
<?=$html ?>
<br>

<font size="4">&nbsp;Welcome</font></td>
<tr>
            <td align="center" width="41%">
            &nbsp;</td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
            <td width="42%">&nbsp;</td>
            <td align="center" width="4%" style="text-align: left; margin-left: 20">
            <p style="margin-left: 22px">Username</td>
            <td align="center" width="11%" style="text-align: left; margin-left: 20">
            <input name=user style="float: left" size="29"></td>
            <td align="center" width="41%">
            <p align="left">&nbsp;</td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
            <td width="42%" height="30">&nbsp;</td>
            <td align="center" height="30">
            <p align="left" style="margin-left: 22px">Password</td>
            <td align="center" height="30">
            <input type=password name=pass style="float: left" size="29"></td>
            <td align="center" width="41%" height="30">
            &nbsp;</td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
            <td width="42%" height="30">&nbsp;</td>
            <td align="center" width="15%" height="30" colspan="2">
            <p align="left" style="margin-left: 21px">

      </tr>
      </table>

cause you removed a bracket that is not extra.

if($something == "something") {
 do something
} else {
   do somethign else
}
the brackets are needed, if they are not present, nothing will happen.

Also, just so you know
if(($user=="user") && ($pass=="pass")) {
says if the variable $user is equal to the value "user" and the variable $pass is equal to the value $pass then return true.
